The profile of students regarding the knowledge required for access, motivations and individual preparation will be assessed on the basis of the evaluation of the curricula and through a selection interview conducted in English here in Milan or by electronic means. This verification will be carried out by a specific “Selection Commission” of teachers appointed by the Faculty Board.

The selection committee reserves the right to admit on the basis of the results of the interview only the students who do not fully verify one or more of the minimum access requirements due to discrepancies in the system of credits or academic qualifications or other objective reasons identified by the analysis of the material attached to the application form.

Students with a foreign qualification are also required to ascertain the basic requirements equivalent to the minimum requirements for students with an Italian qualification.

The master’s degree program also reserves the right to evaluate the possible inclusion of a programmed number, determined from year to year by the competent academic bodies, after evaluation of the structural, instrumental and personnel resources available for the functioning of the same.
